Client Success Story

Our law firm represented an airplane mechanic who broke his right hand when he fell at work. The mechanic earned a high wage and the nature of the injury to his dominant hand made it unlikely that he would be able to return to his pre-injury occupation.

Our work injury attorneys fought to include the cost of retraining in the settlement against his employer and insurer and helped the injured mechanic obtain a settlement in the amount $115,000.

Common Service Technician and Mechanic Work Injuries

Common injuries that workers in the automotive repair business may suffer include:

  • Crushing Injuries
    Automotive workers frequently work on the undercarriages of cars that are elevated with jacks and other hydraulic equipment. If the equipment fails or the cars slide off, the workers underneath may be crushed.
  • Burn Injuries
    Vehicles produce large amounts of heat, especially when engines are revved to diagnose problems. If service technicians come into contact with parts of cars before they have cooled, the workers can suffer serious burn injuries.
  • Chemical Injuries
    Garages and other service shops work with chemicals, such as motor oil, brake fluid, antifreeze, hydraulic fluid, cutting oil, and other caustic liquids. If workers are exposed to these chemicals, they can suffer chemical burns, blindness, neurological problems, cancer, and more.

I had the pleasure to work with Michael and Annie on my LTD case. When my claim was denied by the insurance carrier, Michael didn't hesitate to take them on with an appeal. He worked diligently on the appeal and ultimately won this for me. Mind you, this wasn't a huge case but he treated me like it was and as if I was the only case he was representing. He kept me abreast of vital information, it was clear that he knew his stuff and wasn't afraid to take on the big insurance company. Michael was much more than I ever expected given that our relationship was entirely remote, handled by telephone and email only. Not only is he a strong lawyer, he treated me with compassion and respect. I am beyond pleased with him and the Fields Law team. Michael cares about his clients and he gets the job done for them because he knows how impactful an injury can be to both a person's well-being and their financial security. I highly recommend Michael and Fields Law whether you are local to their Minnesota offices or out of state like myself.read more

Fields Law Firm is great. Patrick Kramer, my lawyer, is fantastic. He and his legal assistant Samantha K. have handled my case for several years. They have kept me informed every step of the way. They are both easy to contact. I have both of their phone numbers and email addresses and they respond promptly to any messages I leave. Without their help I would not have been able to get the disability company to fulfill their promises. It is a relief to leave all the dealings with the disability insurance company in their hands.read more

My experience with Merrick Williams of Fields Law Firm has been truly above and beyond satisfactory. His knowledge and professionalism have guided me through a very difficult time. He and his assistant Angela were readily available to answer any questions and address my concerns. I highly recommend him as an attorney and will use his services again if necessary in the future.read more

Field Law Firm was great my lawyer Zach Schmoll was more than I could ask for. He always kept me in the loop and explain everything perfectly, got back to me whenever I called less than 24 hrs and was a extremely nice guy. This guy is young and knows what he is doing so please don’t let the age fool you. I had a wonderful experience with Field Law and will refer anyone with legal matters to them.read more
